Global Terrorist And Drug Trafficking Cartels

There is a link between Middle East terrorists and the drug trade dates back significantly more than 2 decades, when the United States and pro-Western governments opposed the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979. At that time the focus was on training and equipping fierce mujahideen fighters to resist communist occupation forces, but the methods to that end were often the same drug money. Today it is a similar thing but growing. The drugs raised in Afghanistan finds its way via smuggling routes into markets in both Europe and the United States where they're uyuşturucu cezaları kaç yıl. Consequently millions of dollars and Eros are used to fund terrorist and their terror not merely in Afghanistan but around the world. Most of these same terrorist drug organizations that fuel the terror network also help fund the Taliban attacks in Afghanistan. Part of the illicit cash provides operating capital for international terrorist Osama Bin Laden and others.

Afghanistan produces over 80 percent of the world's opium supply and 90 percent of the opiate products destined for Europe and the USA. Unlike their counterparts in Colombia, the terrorists in Afghanistan enjoy the advantages of a trafficker-driven economy that lacks a national government who has any curiosity about combating it.

Afghanistan President Hamid Karzal recently at a news conference said, "It destroys our economy, it destroys an excellent family life in Afghanistan, which will be the most crucial thing to have in any country. And most important of most, drug production and trafficking goes hand in hand with terrorism, the cash that's created from drugs feeds terrorism in Afghanistan

US Drug Enforcement Administration DEA intelligence confirms the current presence of a linkage between Afghanistan's ruling Taliban and international terrorist Osama Bin Laden. Although DEA doesn't have direct evidence to confirm that Bin Laden is mixed up in drug trade, the sanctuary in Pakistan enjoyed by Bin Laden is based on the Taliban's support for the drug trade, which is a primary supply of income in Afghanistan. Credible DEA source information indicates ties between the Taliban and the drug trade. The Taliban directly taxes and derives financial benefits from the opium trade. They even provide receipts for their collected drug revenues.
